mi has launched its new skill-based game Frogger: Get Hoppin' in MGM Grand, Las Vegas. Konami claim to be the first manufacturer authorised for field trials under the Nevada Gaming Control Board’s New Innovation Beta program, and “the first to introduce skill-based gaming as the primary game play to the Nevada market”.

Frogger: Get Hoppin’ offers players the chance to win random cash awards and earn true skill-based cash awards. Top scores are recorded on daily and all-time Hall of Fame leaderboards.

On 18 and 19 February, the game was premiered in a competition, in which participants played to earn high scores and become the world’s first Frogger: Get Hoppin’ champion and win cash prizes.

Tom Jingoli, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Konami Gaming, states: “Considering Konami’s extensive heritage in consumer arcade and video game entertainment, we’re excited to bring that creativity and technology to the gaming industry in new ways and help pioneer the development of next generation gaming product.

“Thanks to the Nevada Gaming Control Board and the New Innovation Beta program, unique developments like Frogger: Get Hoppin’ can gather and react to early feedback—strengthening success for consumers, operators, and developers alike.”

Jingoli continues: “We’re very pleased with the response we’ve seen to Frogger: Get Hoppin’. Throughout the trial and competition event an entire spectrum of player types have tried the game, but by far the largest audiences represented were those not traditionally engaged in gaming activities at the casino.

“As this emerging sector continues to expand, players can look forward to connecting with new forms of gaming entertainment that reinforce their interests and social preferences.”
